The San Juan de Gaztelugatxe route is a must if you come to visit the Bizkaian coast for its impressive stairs, the views, the feeling of being in a movie and much more! In fact, this gorgeous route came out in the seventh season of Game of Thrones. After making the walk to church, ring the bell three times and make a wish. Tradition says that your wishes will come true and you will be free from evil spirits. It is necessary to get free entry due to the large influx of walkers.
